Bay Avenue Paving Work to Resume Next Week

first_imgCrews work near 18th Street in June on the final “surface course” of a Cape May County road project to repave Bay Avenue.An unfinished project to repair and repave Bay Avenue between Sixth and 18th streets will resume in a week.Cape May County Engineer Dale Foster said last week that the project contractor will begin to work again on Monday, Sept. 15.A concrete crew will pick up at 13th Street, where the project left off (after starting at 18th Street), and finish paving to 11th Street. At the same time, a drainage crew will start at Sixth Street and work toward 11th Street. That portion of the road will be repaved after drainage work is complete.Motorists should expect delays or detours on either side of Ninth Street as the work begins. Foster said the paving work typically involves single-lane closings. The drainage work usually involves closing one entire block at a time during work periods.Asphalt Paving Systems of Hammonton has a $3.3 million contract to reconstruct storm pipes and drains, gutters and sidewalks, and to repave the stretch of Cape May County road between Sixth and 18th streets, a major north-south thoroughfare in Ocean City.The project began in February and was originally scheduled to be complete before the summer, but the project was delayed by a snowy winter and utility work as New Jersey American Water Company (NJAWC) replaced water mains in advance of the repaving work.Crews worked until early June, then ceased during the peak summer traffic months in Ocean City.Foster said the county has no timetable yet for a separate fall project — to eliminate two lanes of traffic on West Avenue south of 34th Street and create two buffered bicycle lanes. He said the county is still reviewing plans with the city.last_img read more

Antibody halts cancer-related wasting condition

first_imgNew research from scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, a Harvard affiliate, raises the prospect of more effective treatments for cachexia, a profound wasting of fat and muscle that occurs in about half of all cancer patients, raising their risk of death.Many strategies have been tried to reverse the condition, which can cause such frailty that patients can’t endure potentially life-saving treatments, but none have had great success.In the July 13 advanced online edition of Nature, scientists led by Bruce Spiegelman, the Stanley J. Korsmeyer Professor of Cell Biology and Medicine at Harvard Medical School, reported that symptoms of cachexia in mice with lung tumors improved or were prevented when the mice were given an antibody that blocked the effects of a protein, PTHrP, secreted by the tumor cells. PTHrP, which stands for parathyroid hormone-related protein, is known to be released from many types of cancer cells.The scientists said their findings were the first to explain in detail how PTHrP from tumors switches on a thermogenic (heat-producing) process in fatty tissues, resulting in unhealthy weight loss. They found that the tumor-derived protein stimulated “beige” or brown fat cells mixed with stored white fat in the body. The stimulation caused white fat to “brown” — that is, generate heat and cause weight loss even when the animals were at rest.The researchers carried out two experiments using mice that developed lung tumors and cachexia. In one, they administered a polyclonal antibody that specifically neutralizes PTHrP and found that it almost completely prevented the wasting, while untreated animals became mildly cachexic. In the second, the antibody treatment prevented the loss of muscle mass and improved muscle function, while control animals developed severe muscle wasting.“You would have expected, based on our first experiments in cell culture, that blocking PTHrP in the mice would reduce browning of the fat,” said Spiegelman. “But we were surprised that it also affected the loss of muscle mass, and improved health.”The research suggested that PTHrP alone doesn’t directly cause muscle wasting, yet blocking the protein’s activity prevents it. Thus, the role of PTHrP “is definitely not the whole answer” to the riddle of cachexia, noted Spiegelman, but it may be a necessary part, with other factors also involved.A collaborator on the study, Vickie E. Baracos at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, provided blood from 47 patients with lung or colon cancer who were cachexic. First author Serkan Kir from the Spiegelman lab, a Robert Black Fellow of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, found increased levels of PTHrP in 17 of the patients; these had significantly lower lean body mass and produced more heat energy at rest than the other patients in the group.It may turn out that the PTHrP mechanism is responsible for cachexia in a subset of cancer patients, but not all, Spiegelman suggested. Before trying the anti-PTHrP antibody in human patients, he said, “clinicians would probably first want to find out if the protein is elevated in certain cancers, and determine which patients would be good candidates for a clinical trial.”Barrett Rollins, Dana-Farber’s chief scientific officer, commented that the report from Spiegelman and his colleagues “provides a new road map for developing a rational, mechanistically based treatment for this incredibly debilitating condition that occurs in such a large number of our patients. Until now we’ve had no truly effective way to reverse this horrible complication.”Patients with upper gastrointestinal and pancreatic cancers are the likeliest to develop cachexia, which affects about 80 percent of terminal cancer patients. Currently these patients are given appetite stimulants and nutrient supplements, along with medications to counteract some of the molecular pathways believed to underlie the wasting process, but this treatment has had only limited success.The research was supported by National Institutes of Health.last_img read more

Diversity Council trains student senators

first_imgThe student Senate meeting Wednesday night focused on diversity training for the senators. The training consisted of four different presentations given by students on the Diversity Council, which represent different cultural and religious backgrounds and concluded with a presentation by student body vice president Matt Devine.The University needs a balance of cultures on campus, Daphne Reynolds, the diversity council representative for the Native American Student Association of Notre Dame (NASAND), said.“Being mixed race in a family setting means learning how to be balanced,” Reynolds said. “You can’t choose one ethnicity over the other because this would be denying the importance of the other culture and demeaning your child in a way. Diversity is a big part of ensuring that we don’t forget who we are.”Sophomore Muslim Student Association Representative Khaoula Morchid followed Reynolds with a presentation about religious diversity on campus and her experience as an international student.“One of the highlights of my time at Notre Dame has been the opportunity to look at faith from a different perspective and not from a specific religion,” Morchid said. “It’s so enlightening to hear stories about countries and cultures that I wouldn’t know much about otherwise. Ask questions and explore rather than assume what someone has lived.”Senior Veronica Guerrero, the First Class Steppers Diversity Council Representative, said students should get involved in different activities on campus that are not associated with their ethnicity.“If your friends invite you to activities for ethnicities that you aren’t necessarily a part of, it’s because they want you to go, not because they want you to feel awkward,” Guerroro said. “Just because you’re not part of the ethnicity or religion doesn’t mean you can’t go to their events, the group wants you there.”After sharing the story of his personal identity, Devine said a strong sense of self should encourage acceptance of others.“Even though we comprise ourselves of different categories and we come from different dorms, quads, states, religions, that it is something that is specific to you,” Devine said. “Hopefully a self-awareness of our own identities will lead to a different type of awareness of other people and where they come from.”Devine said he sees an occasional disparity between how his peers identify themselves and how they tend to stereotype others.“In a way we’re all minorities because we only know our own story and a little bit of other people’s,” Devine said.Tags: diversity council, Senate, senate group, Student governmentlast_img read more
